FREE Initial Consultation:
I have been diagnosed as suffering from mesothelioma. I don't know where I was exposed. Can you assist?
Exposure to asbestos can have occurred in a wide variety of settings – both at work and outside work. We are expert at working with a client to identify possible periods of exposure, and then locating witnesses and other evidence that can confirm and corroborate exposure.
In order to bring a claim you must be able to identify exposure to asbestos that caused or contributed to the mesothelioma. On many occasions we have been able to locate and prove exposure to asbestos that caused disease notwithstanding the client’s initial instructions being that they could not recall any exposure.

I was exposed to asbestos in Australia but now live overseas. I have been diagnosed as suffering from mesothelioma. Can you help?
Your entitlement to bring a claim arises from where you were exposed to asbestos, not where you now live. We have acted for many clients who have moved from Australia and have lived in New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States, Greece and other countries when they have developed mesothelioma.
We maintain relationships with lawyers in many countries which enables us to effectively represent overseas based clients.
We act on a “no win no fee” basis which means we will only be paid our fees if you are successful in obtaining compensation. You will not be charged any monies up front. We will pay all the disbursements (monies paid out by us for such things as court fees and medical reports).
We will not be paid for our work until the successful completion of your matter.
Our fees our determined by an hourly rate plus disbursements. We do not charge a percentage of compensation recovered. If you are successful in your claim the defendant will pay your party/party costs which cover 70 to 80% of your costs.
